When I am asked how Blikki came in to existence, I am reminded of a recent CBS newscast that warned that the typical American female consumer is exposed to an average of 120 possible toxic chemicals every day during her daily beauty regimen. Without an authority to help us decipher the good ingredients from the bad, I questioned where could we go for help? And from that, Blikki was born.
Blikki is built on the adage of “when you know better, you do better.” Most women do not know how to avoid those 120 chemicals, and they also have the sense that alternative products are inferior to traditional products.. I will admit, at one time that absolutely used to be true, but no more. Today you can purchase alternative products that are as good as, and in many cases better than, traditional products.
For instance, did you know that —
• You can purchase organic and raw beauty products that perform as well as traditional products and, of course, don’t contain chemicals that are linked to cancer and/or reproductive problems;
• You can purchase shoes, purses, belts, etc. – that are stunning, eco-friendly, and vegan?;
• You can purchase eco-friendly, fashionable clothing that is as stylish, beautiful, and as trendy as traditional clothing?
• And the list goes on . . .
